Neb. high court reinstates suit against attorney

•  Recent Cases     updated  2010/12/30 08:48


The Nebraska Supreme Court has reinstated a lawsuit against an attorney that was filed by a former client convicted of securities fraud.

Bryan Behrens had sought to sue Christian Blunk for more than $8 million due to Behrens client-investors. In court filings, Behrens says Blunk gave him bad advice and was to blame for the securities fraud. But a Douglas County district judge dismissed the case in March, because Behrens had sought Fifth Amendment protection from self-incrimination.

In the opinion issued Thursday, the high court says the judge was wrong to throw out the lawsuit and should have delayed the case until after Behrens' criminal trial.

Behrens, of Omaha, pleaded guilty to securities fraud and was ordered to spend five years in prison and repay his victims.
